Other news
Bloomberg reported on Supermicro computers being hardware hacked at the factory. If the reports turn out to be true then its a problem for me as I have two Supermicro machines as storage servers. Okay one is still in its box but I have been using the other one for a few years now.

Comms Issues
I had some communications issues with Telstra (one of the largest ISP’s in Australia). I have been unable to upload to or download from US sites for the last 3 days. European sites were unaffected. It seems there was a problem with the undersea cable connecting us to the rest of the world. The Raspberry Pis are on a separate internet link using a different ISP and they also were unaffected. I probably need a load balancer so I can share both internet connections and to provide failover capability. That will be another little project to do.
